Jazmine Guy tells Huffington Post that Southwest Atlanta is a Different World and Why She Loves It

Jazmine Guy, one of SW Atlanta's native daughters, tells why she loves SW Atlanta.

The Huffington Posts', Black Voices, released a brief article about Southwest Atlanta on Sunday, in which Jazmine Guy shares why she loves her hometown neighborhood.

Jazmine and her family are long time members of Friendship Baptist Church, and over the years she has and continues to support the arts and other causes in Atlanta.

In the Black Voices article, which I hope you read, she speaks of her love for Atlanta and SW Atlanta in particular by saying, "It was a wonderful and special place to grow up."

I can not agree with Ms. Jazmine Guy more!  I always say there is no place in the world like the SWATS (Southwest Atlanta), and like many of you, I travel a ton. 

There is just something about the energy once you reach SW Atlanta that feels like home, or a nice warm blanket.  All of SW Atlanta has a unique vibration to it, like we are all part of an ancient, historic, proud society and that we are family no matter what.  Yes, there is crime here just as there is everywhere... But we are not deterred by the crime. When we see it, we are disappointed and saddened as if it is being committed by our own misguided brothers and sisters.

We seem to have some of the largest and oldest trees in Atlanta, and on a perfect day the sun hits the tops of those green trees, the breeze whistles through, the birds chip away, we sit on our porches, or our front steps, we play our music, and we barbeque. Priceless...

I am proud to live in and come from a Southwest Atlanta family!

What do you love most about your neighborhood?

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America. If you're talented, people will find you. That's what http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com/ Coach Factory Outlet happened with soccer. The number of academies has grown rapidly, and people are really into it. As a http://www.coachoutletb1.com/ Coach Factory Online result, nearly every major soccer team has a lot of African players.Through my experience as a Nigerian player, http://www.coachoutlethcs.com/ Coach Outlet Online coach and now NBA executive, I believe basketball can follow a similar path. It starts with building facilities. We need http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com/ Coach Outlet Online to start investing in outdoor courts and indoor gyms for kids to play.

The most traditional means of grinding Saudi coffee is with a mortar and pestle, although the easiest and most common way is to use an electric canister grinder. You may also find that a hand-crank style burr grinder will grind the beans quickly while giving you greater control over the fineness of the grounds. Finer grounds will result in a stronger and somewhat more bitter brew, while coarser ground give you a milder, more mellow flavor. Thanks a lot. http://www.phdproposal.net/
